A hairdresser who tried to run over her friend in a fit of rage has been jailed for a year.

She rammed into a male friend, knocking him over and forcing a woman to swiftly dodge out of the way.

The man, who is the boyfriend of one of her friends, got up unharmed but Ms Condon fled the scene.

On Tuesday a court heard that she became enraged after the man posted an Instagram story showing her on a night out.

Ms Condon had told other friends she was staying in and the video contradicted her, reported Nine News.

About 15 minutes before the road rage, she sent him a text message saying ‘I swear to God, you’re gone mate’.

CCTV footage then caught the moment she drove over a traffic island and rammed her friend.

Southport Magistrates Court heard the pair had a ‘toxic’ relationship.

Ms Condon’s defence lawyer said she had planned to report him to the police for harassment.

Ms Condon pleaded guilty to dangerous driving and failing to remain at a road incident.

Magistrate Jane Bentley said she used her car ‘as a weapon’ and jailed her for a year with parole after three months.
